Power Cuts Are For Winter Aren’t They? – Standby Power Planning
A spate of power cuts throughout the country this month poses the question “Are National Grid reserve power levels Improving or getting worse?”.
On 31st July, what has been referred to as a massive power cut caused power outages affecting most of Glasgow city centre, including homes and businesses.
August 2nd saw 100 homes in Walmley, Sutton Coldfield suffering from a power cut.
Macclesfield businesses were left without electricity after 223 businesses premises endured a power cut on 3rd August. The 3rd August also saw 60 homes in Gloucestershire go without electricity.
On August 4th, a Lichfield power cut left 1200 homes without electricity.
The list continues and of course, occasional power cuts, brownouts and blackouts are perfectly normal and to be expected. However, if your organisation’s services and in particular, life-safety systems, rely on a reliable and continuous supply of power, then perhaps you should be putting backup and standby power planning into effect now.
